Canada’s Time To Shine – February 14, 2013


As predicted the Canadian men’s hockey exacted revenge on the Norwegians on Thursday with a 3-0 beating that was more complete than the score would indicate.  Canada followed that up with complete blowout against the Austrian team today, 6-0, presenting the country with a Valentines gift.

On the medal front, not so good the past few days, with only a silver medal by Patrick Chan in figure skating.  A mini-slump I’m sure and one that will not last long.

Overall, we are holding down 3rd spot with 4 gold and 11 total medals.

To round out today’s post, I bring you 2 things.

First, an article off Yahoo news outlining the USA’s case of Olympic envy – here

Second, free beer in Sochi, but only if you have a Canadian passport, or a Canadian friend I guess.
